CALL FOR PAPERS - **Due to many requests, the submission deadline has been extended to August 10, 2018 (Firm Deadline)** -

The Third WiMob 2018 Workshop on Smart Environments & Urban Networking (SEUNet 2018)

October 15-17th | Limassol, Cyprus


Submission Date (extended): August 10th, 2018 (FIRM DEADLINE)

Acceptance notification: Aug 25th, 2018

Camera ready version due: 1 September 2018

Selected papers, after further extensions, will be considered for submission and publication in the Special Issue "Algorithm and Distributed Computing for the Internet of Things" ( of the Journal Sensors ( (Impact Factor: 2.475).


The continuous and unplanned urbanization has been recently considered as a major challenging factor in the fields of transport and mobility, health and wellness, safety and security, energy and environment, communication and society. In fact, the world urbanization is expected to increase by 80 % in 2050. This rapid population growth will lower the quality of life of citizens by increasing the consumption of energy resources, amplifying noise and pollution levels and dramatically disrupting the normal flow of urban transportation, causing traffic congestion and worsening travel times.

Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are systematically involved in the concept of smart environments and aim at providing seamless services to citizens. However, they bring up a number of technical and environmental challenges that need to be tackled. The objective of this workshop is to address all aspects of the modeling, design, implementation, deployment, and management of smart environments algorithms, protocols, architectures, and systems. We aim to uphold the research activities in this area and provide a platform for discussion on basic and potential challenges faced when considering the integration and interoperation of ICTs in heterogeneous urban environments. To this end, we solicit submission of papers describing significant and innovative research contributions that address technical challenges and issues appearing from the integration, interworking and redefinition of new Internet architectures.


Authors are encouraged to send their original and unpublished work related to smart environments and urban networking. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Named Data Networking (NDN) applications for smart environments and urban networking
• Deep Learning algorithms for 5G smart and urban environments
